Costa Rica’s Tortuga Lodge is an intimate hotel, with just 27 guestrooms. Some rooms feature balconies with views of the lush rain forest. The hotel also has an onsite restaurant, pool, and complimentary Wi-Fi; note that there is no air conditioning, however. The highlight of a visit to this hotel is the chance to get up close with wildlife, including macawas, iguanas, and of course, turtles.

I would highly recommend Tortuga lodge & gardens. The grounds of the property are absolutely amazing with free guided walks around the garden daily. We saw heaps of wildlife on these walks.
Behind the property are several free hikes and again we saw much wildlife here, like monkeys, macaws, a sloth and many birds. Across the river (a short free ride away) we saw baby turtles hatching.
The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff is amazing and all in all this was a perfect experience.
Hope to go back one day!
We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of Costa Rica
The hotel is in an amazing position on the waters edge the wildlife around was plentiful and the guides very knowledgable food in the restraint was provided as an all inclusive package it would have been difficult to go elsewhere as the lodge is isolated
We felt we could have stayed longer and not run out of things to do and see
